Irish Dance at the Thatched Cottage
LearningIrish dancing and music
Irish Dance at the Thatched Cottage is a unique experience in the only thatched cottage in the fishing village of The Claddagh. Experience Irish traditional dance in the way it was shared in the past. Learn in a safe, non judgemental environment with a tutor. There will be an opportunity to try two styles of Irish traditional dance - Irish step dancing and sean-nós dancing.

During the hour long class you will learn a few basic steps and moves from sean-nós and Irish step dancing followed by some background history of traditional Irish dancing and music. It starts with a short tour of the thatched cottage followed by the dancing. Participants will learn and practice the steps without music first and the music is added afterwards.

You will have an opportunity to record the experience to share with your friends, loved ones and on your social media. To finish the class participants are encouraged to ask any questions they have related to the Irish music and dancing world.
